Oct . 8, 1687, widow of Albert Teneicke. She d. Aug. 28, 1742. Marytje Van Vechten, wife of Jeremiah Field, was dau. of Michiel Van Vechten, the first son of Dirck Tennise, and Jarmetje Vrelant. Michiel (above) was b. at Greenbush, opposite Albany, N. Y., Nov. 28, 1663, and m., 1st, Marytje Parker, Nov. 21, 1686; she d. July, 1690. Tennis Dirckse Van Vechten came to the New Netherlands in the ship Arms of Norway, 1638, with wife and child and two servants. He came from Vechten, Holland. Jeremiah Field came with his father John Field to New Jersey in 1695; was commissioned a lieutenant of Col. Thos. Farmer's Company in Piscataway, Middlesex county, N. J., Sept. 28, 1713. In 1741 he was judge of the Common Pleas and Quarter Sessions of the Peace, p. 496, History of Union and Somerset Counties. He m. ___ . All the sons of Jeremiah Field are buried in the family cemetery on the John D. Field place, excepting Michael, who is buried in the churchyard of the Presbyterian church in Bound Brook. At the Lenox Library in New York there may be seen an old Dutch Bible printed in Amsterdam in the year 1603, which, notwithstanding its great age, is in a very good state of preservation, except that the title pages to both the Old and New Testaments are missing. This Bible bears dates of family history as far back as 1634. These records are in Dutch, and refer to the Van Vechten family, in whose possession the book undoubtedly was for many years. It is probable that it came into use as the Field family Bible at the time of the marriage of Marytje Van Vechten, dau. of Michael Van Vechten, to Jeremiah Field. After the record of the births of Jeremiah Field and of Mary Van Vechten and prior to the record of their marriage, there are recorded the births of two children of Mary by her first husband, Albert Teneicke; then follows the record of the births of the Field children. In 1817 this old Bible was presented to the American Bible Society, in whose custody it has been ever since. The two cuts here shown are reproductions from photographs recently taken by Mr. John S. Bussing, one of the descendants of "Jeremiah Field and Mary his wife." They add much interest to the family record. The following shows more clearly the record of the Field family as to names and dates than can be seen in the page of the miniature Bible herewith shown. "Jeremiah Field, the son of John Field and Margaret his wife, was born May 17, in the year 1689. Mary Van Vechten, the daughter of Michael Van Vechten and Mary his wife, was born October 8, 1687. Jeremiah Field and Mary Van Vechten (widow of Albert Teneicke), were married February 19, 1712-13. Jeremiah Field and Mary his wife had following children (see record in Bible in full). Jeremiah, b. Jan. 27, 1713-14; John, b. April 5, 1715; Michael, b. Aug. 24, 1716; Margaret, b. Oct. 2, 1717; Mary, b. Sept. 8, 1719; May, b. Oct. 19, 1720; Michael, b. Feb. 4, 1722-23; Benjamin, b. Feb. 19, 1724-25." On one of the pages someone had written "this is Jeremiah Field's book," and it is easily understood why he had a Dutch Bible. He married a Dutch young lady, and probably her parents gave her this book when she married Mr. Field. The Van Vechtens were a leading family at that time in that region. It was at the old brick house of the half-brother of Marytje (now standing) that Washington attended a reception in honor of Miss Schuyler. During the Revolution this homestead was the center of a bounteous hospitality. On one occasion General Washington danced for three hours with Mrs. Greene, wife of General Greene, without sitting down. Of course, this house had nothing to do with the Fields. It is interesting to note, however, that as soon as Jeremiah Field married into this circle he received a commission as lieutenant; he was probably much in this social and military life. He d. Nov. 10, 1746; res. Bound Brook. N. J."
